Welcome to another year of Drag Idol, the U.K.’s biggest drag talent competition enters its 15th year and looks set to be the biggest one yet, with nationwide venues competing and holding individual heats to find their venue representative to send forward to the UK competition finals.
Drag Idol still remains one of the few competitions on the live scene that can genuinely launch careers on the drag and cabaret circuit and has produced some of the brightest talents on the queer and cabaret scene including La Voix, Louis CyFer, SonofaTutu, Kelly Mild, Danny Beard, Baga Chipz, Martha D’Arthur, Tanya Hyde and last years’ winner; Felix Le Freak to name a few. Even contestants who don’t win have attributed their careers to the exposure that drag Idol bought them.
SonOfaTutu returns once again to host this years competition at the RVT and guide the show, experts from the industry will be invited to judge the contestants in order to find a winner from each nights competition to be put forward to the RVT final in order to find our venue representative.
There will be tears, there will be joy (and a few tantrums) but we guarantee there is always a tiara.
